Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd and Arsenal latest as Liverpool reject Philippe Coutinho deal

Reds snub Coutinho return

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has rejected the chance to re-sign Philippe Coutinho, according to reports.

Coutinho, 27, left the Reds in January 2018 to seal a £142m move to Barcelona.

But after struggling in his time at the Nou Camp, the Brazilian was loaned out to Bayern Munich this season, where he has registered seven goals and as many assists in 23 appearances.

According to El Desmarque, Liverpool were offered Coutinho back by Barca for £91m.

Klopp, though, is said to have laughed off the idea as he instead has his sights set on Napoli ace Fabian Ruiz.

There is also a twist in the tale, as it is believed Real Madrid have caught wind of Barca’s plot and offered the European champions outcasted midfielder Isco.
